About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

Rudolph, The Red-nosed Reindeer

To say that my dad and brothers like to hunt would be an understatement.  My dad has loved hunting as long as I can remember.  Mom tells a story about Glenda and I crying one Christmas because we were just sure that Daddy had killed Rudolph, and Santa wasn’t going to be able to bring us our Christmas presents.

Dad starts getting ready for hunting season in July, a good four months before season opens.  Dad even built a special room in his shop exclusively reserved for cleaning deer.  The room has a stainless steel countertop and sink, and an air conditioner to keep the room cold.



My brother, Gary,  and Dad were cleaning a deer this morning when we got to Mom and Dad’s house.  Of course, I saw this as prime opportunity to practice using my manual settings on my camera.



Good times, Mississippi-style.

That's why I never eat deer meat because Gary made me look at his dead deer and I am ruined for life
